Is a V6 Engine Better Than a 4-Cylinder Engine?

As you can see, the 2020 Kia Telluride and the 2020 Subaru Ascent are very similar when it comes to cargo space, and you will be able to bring home the groceries or haul extra luggage and gear without worry. 

A big difference between the two vehicles is that the 2020 Kia Telluride is outfitted with a V6 engine while the 2020 Subaru Ascent has a 4-cylinder engine. While they are similar in performance and can both tow up to 5,000 pounds, we think that you will like the V6 engine more. With a V6 engine, you will enjoy a smoother ride, better response, and be able to get from zero to sixty a lot quicker – which is crucial when you are merging onto busy highways.
